New toner cartridge for my laser printer.
It has served me extremely well for eight years, so it deserved an official Brother brand cartridge.

Some time ago I bought the Miccus Bluetooth transmitter/receiver for the TV/Roku/BluRay in the bedroom because it had an optical input port.
Miccus Home RTX Mini- Bluetooth v4.1 LOW LATENCY audio Transmitter or Receiver with TOSLINK optical, perfect for adding wireless to TV, PC or Gaming (Single- Link)
Miccus came out with low latency fairly inexpensive ($60) headphones so I decided to give them a try.
Miccus LOW LATENCY Bluetooth v4.1 Over-Ear Headphones, HD Sound, Ideal for TV, Movies, Games, NO LIP SYNC, Foldable with Hard Case - (SR-71 Stealth)
We already have these which are great for me so I keep stealing them to use in other rooms.
iDeaUSA Bluetooth Headphones with Mic, APT-X Wireless Over-ear Headphones for TV, 14 Hours Playback

I just pre-ordered the 2nd generation Echo Dot for $49.99! The price of the new one is $50 less than the original $99 1st generation Echo Dot. I was already planning on buying a Dot at Christmas, so I'm happy to see I'll now only spend half as much and also get a newer version. The 2nd generation begins to ship on 10/20.

Thanks for the heads up! I just ordered an Echo Dot for our second home. We have speakers set up that I use to plug in my phone, so the Dot will be enough. Lately I've been taking Alexa with me from home to the mountain house because I miss her after a couple of days. For $50, it's worth getting a Dot to leave at the other house.

Interesting. Do you need an Echo for Dot to work?

I've never used one before, but it is my understanding that the Echo Dot is basically a full functioning Echo with an audio out port and without the high quality built in speaker. The Dot does have a small speaker built in, but its assumed for quality sound, like listening to music, that you would route its output to other external speakers. The difference in price is significant with the Echo being $179 and the 2nd gen Dot costing $49.99.

A replacement Kohler faucet cartridge that cost me $12.30 and saved me a $75 plumber visit. Also, a bottle of Guerlain Vetiver mens cologne saving me 65% off of retail pricing. I do love Amazon for the right purchases!

Multiple charge cords for DW's iPhone for in the house and to keep in the vehicles, and a 12-volt plug-in USB charger to keep in the pickup. The much newer Honda already had a USB charger in it.

4 Ceiling fans for the building we're restoring in our local town- they were $250 for all 4 through Amazon and $125 each at a more local electrical parts distributor- like to buy local but couldn't do it this time.
